Sequim Celebrations

We love to celebrate in Sequim and we put on some of the best festivals and community events around. Join us as we celebrate irrigation water, that sweet smelling purple plant, our famous sunny environment, and lots of things in between.

Sequim Sunshine Festival

The Sunshine Festival helps us celebrate the end of winter and the coming of the spring and summer seasons with events designed for the entire family  We had a blast last March 3 & 4, 2023 at our 4th annual Sequim Sunshine Festival, despite some challenging weather. Thank you for coming out!

We are now busily working on next year's event!  Plan to take part in the Sun Fun Color Run, live music, interactive light experiences, street painting, drone show, and other activities currently in the planning stages.  

Check back for 2024 dates and updated information as the festival dates draw nearer.
